Tai Kwun will welcome the first edition of a new international art book fair in Hong Kong on 11-13 January. The three-day event will provide a platform for art book publishers and artists to display and sell a diverse range of art books.
“Booked” aspires to enable local, regional and international publishers and artists to showcase and share their works; additionally, the art book fair will feature talks, workshops and performances over the three days. Examples of art books include (but are not limited to) artists’ books, photography books, art albums, zines, art catalogues, art historical and theoretical texts, artists’ editions and gallery editions (e.g. prints), texts by artists, book arts and book sculptures, as well as art-related ephemera (such as tote bags, pins, and badges)—in sum, the results of artistic practice at the intersection of “art” and “books”.
